It's Hall of Fame night for the Canucks and fittingly they play Florida, the state where Canucks go to when they want to leave or retire (Luongo..Bure..Ohlund..Jovo..Bertuzzi). It's a great night to reflect on past accomplishments because no-one wants to re-watch the horror of the last game.


The Canucks have juggled lines, brought back Stillman but these minor changes are unlikely to ease concerns that they destined for mediocrity this season.  Their opponents are winless on their western swing after losses to the Albertan franchises and will be eager to pick up a win tonight. Prized acquisition Matthew Tkachuk is -3 on the road trip so far and would love to add to his 10-goal season.


Some people say that Florida falling into the sea would help the US, some think that the NHL should withdraw teams there so that prime talents are not wasted and forgotten amongst a population that cares more about Tim Tebow.In the end Florida is just another test for a Canucks team which has failed most of them so far this season.


If you're feeling down about the Canucks then there's always some fun news out of Florida to help:









  • Tonight marks the first of two meetings between the Canucks and Panthers this season: Dec. 1 (home) and Jan. 14 (away).

  • The Canucks are 18-11-6-4 all-time against the Panthers, including a 10-3-5-2 record at home.
